It actually looks like a sleeve now! I finished the short rows and have gotten through the first two of 9 sets of decreases. I might actually finish this sweater in under a year and a half. I’ve been making jokes that this sweater was going to take me two years to knit because I seem to pick it up every couple of months, finish a section, and then forget about it for a bit.
You might remember that I was worrying about the sleeve length after I finished the first sleeve. It was a good length, but it was longer than I expected and I was afraid that it would grow after I washed the sweater because my swatch grew in length. Well, it turns out that I knit an extra decrease repeat so my sleeve is longer than it was meant to be. I’m trying to decide if I want to rip back the first sleeve and make it slightly shorter or if I want to knit the second sleeve the slightly longer length that I like and risk having to rip back both sleeves later.
